He noted that some of the accounts were flagged for receiving multiple salaries from other government ministries/agencies.

According to Alkali, receiving multiple salaries from government organisations is against the regulations guiding the N-Power volunteer programme.

He wrote, “Five months allowance arrears of these volunteers, totalling N150,000 each, is currently being paid.
